SOURCE: dust blowing out of my vaccuum cleaner

Usually when dust is blowing out it is caused by a clog, either the hose, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Check them and clean them out and you should be ok.

You put hot tap water (never boil water) into the clear bag through an opened hole in the canister. The dirty water will be correct outside of the bag. You remove the dirty water by open the valve at the bottom of the canister.

good luck

It sounds like the plates inside the vacuum that detect the dirt have become dirty. I don't remember where they are, but I think they're accessible if you remove a certain hose. Again, I don't know which hose it is.

Press the handle release kick-button with your foot, extend the handle all of the way back, and take a look at the gap between the base of the unit and the handle/reseviour assembly. You should see several black hoses attached to the base and running up into the handle assembly. One of them (the dirty water return hose) might be cracked. Turns out that might be a common problem with this model. We had the same problem.

Judging by the interference between the vacuum hose and the "dirty water return" hose, there is NO WAY those two hoses can exist together in that housing without causing the dirty water return hose to stress. It certainly cannot last for many full bends of the handle.

We opted to not repair our unit, but you might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part and several hours of your time. Otherwise, seek out your certified Hoover repair center for more info.

UPDATE: I McGuyverized it myself with a dremel cutoff tool, some vinyl tubing, some 2-part epoxy, and a lot of faith. It sure isn't pretty, but it sucks again. :)

Free user manual for Hoover power path max


What is the model number of the carpet cleaner?

Home Depot has the manual for the Hoover Power Path Max FH51002 on the product page: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hoover-Power-Path-Max-Upright-Carpet-Cleaner-FH51002/300984357 . The direct link to the manual is https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfimages/e8/e81b1250-323a-4f1d-a23a-e4c319568399.pdf . In the manual, the model is called the Dual Power Path Max.

Hoover lists 3 Dual Power Path Max and 8 Power Path models on their manuals page: https://www.hoover.com/manual-video-search/ . The Power Path Max carpet cleaners do not show up with this search engine without adding Dual at the front of the search query.

I hope this helps.

No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

Which is the best caprpet steam cleaner mid priced?


I would recommend the Hoover brand. The Bissell's are very problematic, they have belts that break and issues with the heating elements. Hoover Steam Cleaners can be repaired and are simple to use. The price range is generally $180 - $300

My Hoover will not turn on


there was probably a leak in the hose/piping near the pump in the vacuum that shorted out the motor. you will need a new motor for the vacuum. you will also need a new pump assembly. i strongly recommend that you also replace all the internal tubing and places where the pipes join.
